The series has a less number of fan base which is considered as another matter of fact for the delay in renewing a new season, but fans who watched the series are following it only because of the animation works
But still the confusing part about the Project Scard series is that there are no other source materials available rather than the fact that the series is based on an original story which is so hard to associate or force for a continuation of the series. Although it gained more popularity and hype even before its release, the anime series wasn’t able to meet or satisfy the expectations of fans about the series.
But still the series is about original storylines and this fact is increasing the possibility for a number of Spin-off projects from the creators. But there are still hopes because if the popularity of the series might increase in the near future then there will be a green flag for resuming the productions for a new season very soon.
